What is Oracle Cloud Security?
The Oracle Cloud Security is for providing secure access and monitoring of your hybrid cloud environment and addressing all your IT governance and compliance requirements. Oracle delivers an Identity SOC providing actionable intelligence and bi-directional control through a combined offering of SIEM, UEBA, CASB, and IDaaS.
If you are new to Oracle Cloud Security and Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS), then I would highly suggest you check my previous post on Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) Overview & Concepts.
Below are some basic terminologies of Cloud security:
- SCIM (Security Information and Event Management) for simplified user management in the Cloud by defining a schema for representing users and groups
- UBEA (User and Entity Behavior Analytics) is the process to detect users behavior and malicious activity.
- Identity SOC (Oracle Identity Security Operations Center) is Actionable intelligence on incidents supports a proactive defense as well as post-event analysis for the root cause.
- CASB (Cloud access security broker) is an on-premises or cloud-based security policy enforcement point that is placed between cloud service consumers and cloud service providers to combine and interject enterprise security policies as cloud-based resources are accessed.
- IDCS (Oracle Identity Cloud Service) provides identity management, single-sign-on (SSO) and identity governance for applications on-premise, in the cloud and mobile applications.
- IDaaS (Identity-as-a-Service) refers to identity and access management services that are offered through the cloud or SaaS (software-as-a-service) on a subscription basis.

What topics you should learn?
If you are planning to take this exam, you have to be well prepared in Identity (SOC) Framework, Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) Fundamentals, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Services Architecture and Services Deployment. Once you are done with learning these topics & doing Hands-on Cloud, you are prepared for the exam.
This Learning Path strings together the key courses that enable you with tools to successfully plan and implement a security solution for your Hybrid or Public Cloud environments.
Here are Module wise exam topics that we cover in our Oracle Cloud Security 1z0-933 Certification training.
1. Identity Security Operations Center (SOC) Framework
- Identify the Cloud Security marketplace including trends, business drivers, and challenges (e.g. IDaaS, CASB, SIEM, etc)
- Describe Identity SOC framework high-level architecture
- Define Identity SOC framework services and capabilities
The traditional SOC (Security Operations Center) provides device management and monitoring services for firewalls, intrusion protection systems, proxies, and other perimeter and preventative security technologies. Alongside change management and maintenance of security devices, monitoring system logs and events have primarily been done using a security information and event management (SIEM) platform.
2. Identity Cloud Service Fundamentals
- Identify the key capabilities provided by Identity Cloud Service, including the business value
- Describe typical use cases for Identity Cloud Service
- Execute basic configurations on Identity Cloud Service including users and groups, dashboards, reports, and policies
- Secure Identity Cloud Service
- Configure Delegated Authentication
- Configure Adaptive Security and MFA
We cover these topics in our Cloud Security with Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) Training in detail. In Module 4: IDCS Users, Groups, Applications (IDCS Administration), Module 5: IDCS Customization & Branding, MFA Module 6: Managing Oracle Identity Cloud Service Applications, Module 7: Using Rest APIs and Adaptive Security.

3. Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
- Identify the key capabilities provided by CASB Cloud Service, including the business value
- Describe typical use cases for CASB Cloud Service
- Execute basic configurations on CASB Cloud Service including users and groups, dashboards, reports, and policies
- Monitor Security Risks
Oracle CASB Cloud Service protects your entire cloud footprint with automated security monitoring. Oracle CASB Cloud Service meets modern, cloud security requirements to protect your business. Oracle CASB Cloud Service provides visibility into previously unknown applications downloaded from enterprise app stores and custom applications.
